NPPD Joins Rebuild Effort

In March, Nebraska Public Power District became one of the state's Rebuild Nebraska partners. The utility will be assisting in promoting and marketing the effort throughout Nebraska.

"NPPD has a rich tradition of working with its customers to constantly help them find ways to use energy more efficiently. We focus on providing our customers with recommendations that are in their best, long term, economic well being," said the utility President Bill Mayben. "Our goal is always to do that in a cost effective and environmentally friendly manner so that we preserve our quality of life and maintain the lowest possible energy costs here in Nebraska,"

According to the utility, a number of trained energy analysts will work with the Energy Office and the utility's customers to build awareness of the Rebuild Nebraska.

"The program is important, not only for energy efficiency and economic development, but also to help revitalize communities throughout the state and contribute to improved environmental quality," said Dennis Grennan, Senior Vice President of the utility.

"We will also provide our customers with information on technology, how to apply it to reduce energy usage and make their facilities more energy efficient, and methods of financing new energy efficient technologies. We view this program as another tool in our diversified services for customers. Improved information on energy efficiency makes good economic sense for all Nebraskans," Grennan said.

In May, officials in Beatrice and York agreed to become the initial focus of the joint utility/state effort. By working with local entities such as the Greater York Area Chamber of Commerce already a Rebuild partner and Beatrice's Public Works Board the two hope to find 30 additional partners in the two towns.
